Campaign: Product Accessibility

Enhance core product to meet section 508

One question for the producers of documents is how section 508 might limit the mainstream product--website, document, data sets, use of color, dynamic graphics and content, etc. There are reasons that information is conveyed in a variety of formats and media and section 508 should not limit how the core product is developed. Rather section 508 should address how accessible enhancements and supplments are added in. Limiting the core product to satisfy 508 will create resistance among originators of products and result in dissatisfaction among product users.
